For those of you who are budget-conscious, there is a special rate on rooms at the Chapel Hill University Inn, which is right around the corner from the Sheraton - about a ten minute walk (1 mile). The price is currently $64 a night, which is half what you'd pay for the discounted rooms at the Sheraton. I'll be staying there all week. There are other options as well in town - you can see them by checking with Hotels.com
Registration info and the conference program are now on the ARSC website.
